Description:

The Bestselling Student-Friendly Statistics Textbook is Completely Updated! "Field has introduced important new introductory material on statistics... This book is the best blend that I know of a textbook in statistics and a manual on SPSS." -David C. Howell, University of Vermont (Emeritus) Andy Field's self-deprecating, vivacious but yet easy to understand writing style has won him many plaudits, and now an award from the British Psychological Society (2007), for his irreplaceable Discovering Statistics Using SPSS . The Third Edition is now even more accessible to the introductory student at the very beginning of their statistical journey. The textbook now uniquely walks students from very basic to advanced level concepts, all the while grounding knowledge though the use of SPSS. Key updates to the Third Edition: Provides readers with a fully compliant SPSS Student Vversion 16 Offers a stunning new 4-color textbook design to illustrate SPSS 16 mechanisms appropriately at no additional cost to students Expands on the first 6 chapters to more "gently" introduce basic level concepts to beginning students Contains an additional chapter on Multilevel Modelling to strengthen its use for advanced level students Incorporates playful "real world" examples to go alongside those made up by the author Gives new features and characters designed to offer reassurance to those new to statistics, as well as direction for those who wish to advance their knowledge further. Accompanied by an improved Companion Web site at www.sagepub.co.uk/field3e including animated "SPSS walk-throughs" of tests discussed in the textbook; assessment materials and datasets pertinent to lecturers/instructors in Business & Management and Health Sciences; and a suite of other materials for lecturers/instructors and students as per the 2 nd Edition. The original CD-Rom materials are now found on this Web site as well.
